This Lewes pre-wedding engagement photography is proof yet again why I love this town so much. Last year Lewes even ranked as THE PRETTIEST town in England by The Telegraph.
So when Sophia and Jackson were discussing places to have their engagement photographs, Lewes was the perfect choice. With it’s gorgeous gardens at Southover Grange and historic castles and buildings, Lewes has a plethora of pretty backdrops.
And if you time things right, it can be nice and quiet. Perfect when you don’t want loads of strangers staring!
Something Sophia and Jackson were very nervous about. They booked the engagement session as practice for their Pembroke Lodge wedding. Which I’m so glad they did! They were so relaxed and on their wedding day and the photographs just radiate so much love and joy.
And they sent me the nicest card following their wedding day.
“We cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are for all the amazing work you did for our wedding. From learning names to the engagement shoot to making everyone feel so comfortable on our wedding day. You truly captured such amazing and magical moments that we will treasure forever. Thank you so, so much.”Sophia + Jackson
And Sophia’s mum also wrote me the kindest review as well! I honestly can’t get enough of this family.
There literally are no words that can adequately describe how I feel about Kelsie & her amazing photography
She captured my daughter’s wedding so perfectly, with photographs so stunning, that they instantly bring me back to the day & fill me with emotion
Yes maybe it could be argued that I’m naturally biased as MoB BUT this view has also been echoed independently by all the wedding guests & even those who didn’t attend but have viewed her photos
As one person said ‘these photos are truly special, just magical’
She is also super professional & takes control without ever being overbearing or dominant – and that’s a very difficult vibe to pull off … especially with the strong characters in our families!
Honestly I have seen some gorgeous wedding photos throughout my life but none come even close to the raw emotion that Kelsie’s photos manage to capture
She also did so much work prior to the wedding day. Her research into both familes (committing names/relationships to memory) & asking my daughter & partner so many questions – was astonishing & again we reaped the benefit of her knowledge on the day
Thank you so so much Kelsie – we will be forever gratefulTeresa Mahon
Lewe Pre-wedding Engagement Photography
After a walk around a few iconic spots on Lewes High Street, we headed to the quiet of Southover Grange. Southover Grange is the gardens surrounding Lewes Register Office. And honestly, I think it might be the best wedding registry office in Sussex. The interiors are stunning and then to be met with such beautiful gardens? My heart cannot cope!
So many register offices lack a space for group photographs or stunning couple portraits, but a Lewes Register Office wedding ticks all the boxes.
And while this session wasn’t their wedding, we still went to all the best spots for their Lewes pre-wedding engagement photography!
